Are you the laughing stock of the whole town, in the best way possible?
How did evolve into the comedic genius you are today?
Was it merely a survival instinct, to compensate for your terrifying appearance?

Pit dwellers, if you consider yourself to be funny, how did you become funny?

By watching lots and lots of Mighty Boosh

edit: actually the truth is I'm quite hit and miss with my hilariousness. I say basically every mildly funny thing that comes into my head and every now and then one of them is genius.

I don't consider myself funny. I consider myself a knob. Stupid annoying knob you.

Fine, if we're going to be serious about it, I wouldn't say I became funny. I just say the things I say mostly because I find it entertaining to me and speaks for the humorous side of my personality. I mean, I make serious thought out comments too, but more often they're humorous. If people find it funny, that's great. If people don't / find me annoying, that's okay too. Though no one has claimed I'm annoying yet, so I guess I'm doing okay. If they told me though, I wouldn't be bothered by it.

Just pay one or two people to pretend you're funny, then other people will see and feel pressured to also find you funny.

Watch other people being funny. Not your friends, professionals. Good comedy has more to do with timing and delivery than most people seem to think. Watch enough stand up and you'll start to get a feel for it. And if you really want to be dedicated, look for comedians that suit your style. If you're a low key person, watch Mitch Hedberg. High energy, cocaine-era Robin Williams. That sort of thing.

I spent most of my life not being funny at all. I told more "one man jokes" than I care to admit. I'm considered a funny guy at whatever job I work at, but not so much in school or home. My sense of humor is dry to say the least, so it requires the ear of someone who's not easily offended, which is anyone that works in a restaurant as I do.
#17
If there is any advice to a sense of humor, I think it would be don't be too serious. Lighten up. Don't take life too seriously, don't take yourself too seriously, just stop being so uptight and serious. If you can make fun of yourself, you are on the right track.


Anyways, it looks like you are already being too serious. I mean, you are overanalyzing it a lot if you ask me. Just start out doing or saying things that you personally find funny or amusing. Sometimes others will share in the laughter, and other times you're laughing alone. Either way someone is laughing ..and eventually you'll get the hang of it or find a crowd that shares your sense of humor.

i'm not that funny but i use what i call the mitch hedberg theory. the more jokes you tell the more chances that one of them will be funny.

however mitch was really good at recovering from a bad joke. i am not.
I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given.

Standup comedy and just being quick/witty/funny in real life are two completely different things.

I feel like alot of people could train to become good stand up comics.. just being naturally quick thinking and funny is another thing entirely. Some people just aren't funny.. it's a characteristic not a skill, imo. Hence why people describe someone as " he has a good sense of humor". Its not something you can train or develop. If you honestly don't have a good sense of humor.. don't dwell on it. I'm sure you've got things you're good at too.

I don't think you should ever have to make fun of other people, to be funny. At work or not. Most the time I can make people laugh making fun of myself, or dumb things i've done. If you have to pick on people to make others laugh, you're not creating the joke.. you're just making fun of someone and everyone else is laughing at that person.

Sure, why not.

"I'm not funny" is too absolute, though. It forces the listener of that statement to assume I'm never funny anywhere, ever. We all have our places and people we're funniest with. My friends don't think of me as the comedian of the group, but at my job, I am. With my sister, I am. With certain people in my educational career, I'm the funniest guy they've ever met.

Back when I was in the military, nobody thought I was funny.
#23
man its not like you are doing a stand up routine chill out and stop trying to over-analyze stuff. nobody likes a dude trying too hard to get a laugh. just chill out and be yourself. if you are quick witted its chill, you just need to find your demographic and the people who appreciate you. you arent like a snowflake mate.
#24
It's just a personality trait. There is no way to "be funnier", you're either funny or you are not.

I was bullied as a child and I developed a stinging wit as a defense mechanism. Then I got three concussions and now it's pretty much all gone. After the third one, I've even started stuttering on occasion. That kills a lot punchlines.

being funny has less to do with what you say and more to do with how you execute it. and if people generally don't see you as a funny person, unless you really hit gold you're probably fucked.

All of my friends would probably say I'm funny, up there in the top "comedians" of the group. I joke around more often if it's a close friend, around others I sort of hold back in a way.

On UG I don't think I've really come off as an exceptionally hilarious person, but w/e. Half of you probably don't recognise me.

Watch lots of TV. Throw obscure, yet funny quotes into conversation when appropriate.

For example:
'We should plan this out'
'I have a plan so cunning you can put a tail on it and call it a weasel.'

Etc.

Yea, that's the joke. Lots of people do that, they overload on pop culture references as a filler for unoriginal material. The point is; Don't do that.

Why arent germans funny?

Because they can't beat the Jew-prank anymore; once you have killed 6 million of them, there is no more comedy to be made. They have already reached the stars. They became: the übermensch; emotionless. They transcended comedy.
